Buying local is easy with an abundance of fresh food from Calvert County’s farmers, agri-businesses and watermen. Calvert County’s weekly farmers markets return with early harvests ready for sale with two new locations.
Late spring markets include bedding plants (vegetables, herbs and flowers), hanging baskets, tasty salad greens, asparagus, kale and strawberries; selections will vary by market. Visit your favorite vendors from last year and find exciting new offerings at each market.
This season, three Calvert County farmers market locations, excluding the Lusby market, will be accepting Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), WIC and SFMNP benefits. This year, the Maryland Market Money program will offer a dollar-for-dollar match for purchases made using federal nutrition benefits at the three participating farmers markets.
